Perceived Facilitators and Barriers to Rural Ambulatory Care Practice Among Registered Nurses
Although a quarter of all registered nurses work in ambulatory care settings, little research has addressed the factors associated with their remaining in the profession and current job settings. The current study will survey a sample of rural and urban nurses to ascertain perceived facilitators and barriers to remaining in rural practice.
